Tsurii897 commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Allows Wii U and 3DS eSho...:

@Ryno Guacamelee alone is worth 10$ (and arguably more, really great game in my opinion) :P

Anyway...what are the chances of something like that happen for Europe? I have no idea how humblebundle handles regions/where those guys are from, but this is a pretty darn awesome deal.



Tsurii897 commented on Video: Discover What Happens When Yoshis Meet ...:

@Captain_Gonru not any more barren than Europe's winter+spring.
E3's in 3 weeks. If they don't announce anything for summer there we can start calling the schedule barren. As of right now it's actually possible that we're getting at least one (nintendo-published) Wii U game each month until the end of this year.



Tsurii897 commented on Feature: Yoshi's Woolly World, Like Kirby's Ep...:

@pikminfan22 "I don't like D-pad controls too much in games.. "
Blasphemy :|

Yoshi's Woolly World has me almost as hyped as Xenoblade Chronicles X at this point. I absolutely love Yoshi's Island (the very first game I ever played and to this day my all-time favorite) and Yoshi's Story (and YI DS is, in my opinion, pretty good, too) and, just judging from previews, it seems like Good Feel managed to finally recapture the magic of the original in terms of gameplay.
Can't wait for June and I hope the game will manage to dethrone the original. I have a good feeling (pun intended) about this one ;)



Tsurii897 commented on Art Academy: Atelier Sketched In For 26th June...:

@outburst I actually think SketchPad was/is just some kind of paid trial version. It's literally just a sketchpad, you get some different kinds of "paper" and 3 or 4 different sets of pencils and paint.

I don't see it being worth purchasing if you want to wait for the final game anyway, especially since you don't save any money like this.



Tsurii897 commented on Art Academy: Atelier Sketched In For 26th June...:

Feels like an eternity since I got SketchPad....Not sure if I'll be getting this right away with Yoshi releasing on the same day and XenobladeX, hopefully, being relatively close to that, too (I can dream :p )

Not sure how I feel about the price, but then again I never played any of the other Art Academy games, so I can't really tell how much (more) I'll be getting out of the full game. The timelapses sound like an awesome idea for this, but I doubt I'll use the upload feature...I'm always all over the place when I'm drawing something and it'd just end in a really ugly mess XD



Tsurii897 commented on Exclusive: eShop Publishers Are Dropping Relea...:

@McoobabWATP I don't even care about how much"truth" there is behind their statement. I just want them to be honest. If they'd explain why they're doing this and it's not the usual nonsense other (bigger) developers like to throw at us, I'd be fine with it and just move on. But if they're not telling us what's affected by this, it'll just end as another waiting game for me to see which games are and which aren't released here. And that is p***ing me off



Tsurii897 commented on Exclusive: eShop Publishers Are Dropping Relea...:

"We should point out that the developer who has tipped us off wishes to remain anonymous, but we can tell you they are a widely-respected member of the Nintendo indie development scene and have already created and released multiple well-received titles on the eShop."

Well...if they're not going to be upfront about it, I couldn't care less. I can understand that this stuff is expensive and everything. It's a real dickmove to do this without even telling the customers which games/developers would be included in this and just quietly drop us as a market, tho.



Tsurii897 commented on ​Don't Starve: Giant Edition Arrives on the ...:

I actually hope they'll let you buy a single copy too. I don't have anyone in Europe/a PAL region to play this with lol

I guess if I have to get two codes, I'll try and look for someone who's willing to trade something else for it.



Tsurii897 commented on Square Enix Pushes Back Its E3 Press Conferenc...:

@Peach64 ...!! Now that sounds exciting!! Would be the first real reason for me to get a PS4 (not big on main series KH, I absolutely hate Sora, and FF XV's demo bored me a bit, they'll have to show me some really unique /exciting stuff to rekindle my interest in that game. And the rest of the exclusives...meh)



Tsurii897 commented on Square Enix Pushes Back Its E3 Press Conferenc...:

I'm sure they're well aware that parts of their audience (the Bravely Second and, with a big maybe, Dragon Quest crowd) wouldn't be watching their presentation if they didn't change the time. Squenix are weird (and pretty stupid), but not even those guys would want that.
That is, unless their lineup for the 3DS will be shown during Nintendo's Digital Event, but why would they not do that themselves when they have their own presentation?

@Peach64 Type 1? Not Final Fantasy, right?



Tsurii897 commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

Yeah..not backing it since I don't own either the PS4 nor an X1 (and wouldn't want to play it on PC)

If that cryptic note about Nintendo turns out to be an announcement of a Wii U port in that weird basement /castle/whatever thingy with the "achievements", I'll probably jump on board tho.
(glad that Comcept doesn't seem to be involved after all, btw)



Tsurii897 commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

@rjejr I understand that and, to a certain degree, I actually agree with you. BUT I was going off of how much Splatoon will offer at launch. And that's not much, even less if you can't get the amiibos (for obvious reasons?) or simply aren't interested in amiibo as a whole (like me). I appreciate that they are supporting the game after release, I just think that I would've preferred if they just delayed it for a month and included at least 1-2 modes and maps each more. At this point I, and I'm sure a lot other people, simply won't buy Splatoon on day one. And by the time there's enough content for me to consider it, I will play Yoshi.

So to me it's not them padding the summer break out with additional content for their software, but the break "moving". Now I won't get anything until Yoshi's released and I think that it won't be too long until something else releases after that game. You have to keep in mind that E3 is just around the corner with a lot of announcements in terms of release dates and Nintendo have enough games in the pipeline for Wii U to release at least one 1st party title/exclusive game every month from June to December and almost all of those already announced games interest me, personally, more than Splatoon.



Tsurii897 commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

@Peach64 my exact thoughts.
There's like no reason to get the game at launch at all in my opinion. 2 games modes with 5 maps is just too little content for an online-centric game. The maps they'll release later on are the ones we've been shown ever since the reveal too! I really want to know what happened for them to be this much "behind schedule" (if it wasn't planned from the start of course).

I honestly think that they should've delayed the game a month if that's the time they need to be done with the bulk of the stuff, because as it stands now they are releasing an unfinished product. Heck, I wouldn't even mind if they had 3 more maps and another mode or two in the game at launch and would charge us for the rest of the DLC and this is a first.

I can't wait for the hypocrites who constantly bash other developers/games for having DLC that's been created in the time between the end of development and the final release (and is thus announced or available shortly after launch) and who WILL defend Splatoon being released in this state tho.



Tsurii897 commented on Fire Emblem's Two Versions Will Offer Very Dif...:

@SirQuincealot they're two games. Think about it like Pokémon games, but the Fire Emblem games have pretty big differences in difficulty, setting/story and gameplay.
They basically confirmed what I expected ever since they announced that "split": they are developing two games at the same time, one for newcomers and/or people who just want to enjoy the game without having to deal with more advanced/difficult stuff and one for the "hardcore" crowd.



Tsurii897 commented on Poll: With Races Won and Cups Collected, How D...:

I love 200cc!!

My favorite character and track are the Villager (boy) and Super Bell Subway, really digging the latters music, too.
Overall it's a great pack and definitely worth its price.

The only thing that was disappointing is, in my opinion, Baby Park.



Tsurii897 commented on Preview: Unraveling the Truth in Yoshi's Wooll...:

"From the moment you enter the first level you'll (likely) immediately breathe a sigh of relief, as Baby Mario is nowhere to be seen"
You people are terrible, poor Baby Mario... Q.Q

Anyway...the game sounds pretty good to me. I'll definitely get it. I don't want to keep going back to Yoshi's Island and Story whenever I feel like playing a (good!!) Yoshi game. (I mean...they're awesome games, Yoshi's Island being my all-time favorite, but I know every inch of them like the back of my hand by now)



Tsurii897 commented on The Mechs of Xenoblade Chronicles X Are Named ...:

@Yorumi oh 'kay, I misunderstood you then. The change is weird (especially because we're already used to "Doll" by now), but it's not like it's such a big effort to change the text shrug
There have been weirder/worse changes in localizations under NoA (cough FE:A DLC cough)

@rjejr I wrote/sent the message before that other reply of yours showed up (on mobile atm and the comments seem to load at random, sometimes they appear on their own and sometimes they won't until I refresh the page)
Seems like I took it wrong. So..sorry for that, I guess.

But about the stream was clearly aimed towards people who didn't follow the updates on the Japanese website and watched the different presentations. You have to keep in mind that we were not the target audience for those. And, as I said, I think if you see it that way, they did a good job at showing off the basics, even though I admit that some explanations were a bit wonky. But that's what you get when you want to present the game as you're actually playing it and you're not just showing pre-recorded footage. They said it themselves when they talked about the Pilot view (was that what they called it?): they couldn't really control when or if certain things happen.
Really the only thing that was disappointing was the casually dropped "later this year". I think we won't see an actual release date until E3. And judging from the comments about the localization maybe not even then (which would be stupid and it'd suck really hard, but it seems likely tbh)



Tsurii897 commented on The Mechs of Xenoblade Chronicles X Are Named ...:

@rjejr don't even try to be sarcastic/cynical or w/e if you didn't bother watching the stream. There's not much entirely new apart from the official English names that wasn't already covered by Nlife when the Japanese presentations were streamed. They did a really good job at showing the game off to people who didn't follow the Japanese streams/announcements.



Tsurii897 commented on The Mechs of Xenoblade Chronicles X Are Named ...:

@Yorumi because that's how Monolith intended it to be. They have a ton of English text in menus even in the Japanese version of the game.

I honestly don't know what I expected tbh...was hoping (but not really counting on) a first glimpse of the dub. Like..maybe have at least Elma or Lyn's VA narrate that first segment. But the fact that they admitted that they did not even finalize a lot of the terms yet has me a bit worried. There's, of course, always the possibility that they want to get the entire script out of the way before they work on the less important things in menus tho..I guess.

We will mist likely get at least 2 more streams like that, tho, if the end of the narrated "trailer" is any indication.
I liked that they showed a little of the world. About what I expected in terms of variety considering how "little" we've seen.



Tsurii897 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

@lillith I'm always braking right before I get to a turn and take it a lot slower than I would normally. Usually I just go full speed through them, but if you'd do that in 200cc you're either flying off the road or hitting a wall right away or if there's multiple turns after another you gain a ridiculous amount of speed and literally shoot out of the last turn like a bullet without much control whatsoever.



Tsurii897 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

@bluedogrulez braking is mandatory. But I think 200cc is really..rewarding once you get the "new" mechanics (so uhm..only braking as you drift around turns lel) down.

Anyway... I LOVE SNES Rainbow Road on 200cc. Always liked that course anyway but it's so much more fun now :3
Trying to get 3 stars in every cup and I like how difficult some tracks have become (strangely enough some of the tracks I had problems with before feel a lot easier now. Dunno why tho)



Tsurii897 commented on Hands On: Hitting the Tracks in Mario Kart 8 D...:

Wait..the bone..something is not a bike? That's awesome. (not too big on bikes tbh)

I'm actually somewhat disappointed that they included Baby Park tho. There's so many better tracks and they decide for a second oval. I doubt it'll be half as chaotic without the super items, even considering the fact that you get a boost whenever you bump into someone (which will probably happen a lot)



Tsurii897 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I'm convinced Splatoon itself will get a lot attention, because it's something relatively fresh and due to the media and general public being very positive towards it for the most part (there's, of course, always 'that one guy').
I don't think it will move many systems outside of the usual hardware bump. I actually don't think there's too many games in general that do that anymore (maybe excluding games like Pokémon or Yokai Watch and MH in Japan). True system sellers are a thing of the past for the most part.

I don't care too much about this, as long as I keep getting new games myself, but I would be pretty surprised if the Wii U sold much more than dunno...12 Mio by the end of its lifecycle (I think that's realistic? Zelda will probably give it a bump that's similar to what Smash and Mario Kart did). None of the games that are announced (and probably even the unannounced games) will change the Wii U's fate, the damage's done at this point. But, again, it's not like I'm bothered by it personally.

The amiibo use is great this time, but as I said on another article, I don't see myself getting an amiibo just for that content, simply because I'm not interested in getting the figurines. I still hope the functionalities in games like XCX or Zelda (IF they implement it) won't go beyond cosmetic changes, tho(which kinda contradicts what I would want from amiibos as a whole, but I'm stubborn when it comes to those kind of games. Additional content of any form just doesn't belong in a Zelda game in my opinion)



Tsurii897 commented on Each Splatoon amiibo Will Unlock 20 Special Ch...:

It's finally a pretty good use for amiibo...I just wish they would make the missions available on the eShop, I wouldn't even mind paying as much for it as for the figurines themselves, if it's something like these missions, but I just don't like how most of the amiibos look. Stuff like the knitted Yoshi is awesome, but those small plastic figurines aren't doing it for me at all.

They can't release the amiibo cards soon enough. Those would at least save me some hassle with putting amiibos away.



Tsurii897 commented on Feature: The Final Xenoblade Chronicles X Pres...:

Dem Dolls.. :3
Beyond hyped to get my fingers on the game and customize them to my heart's content (or until I'm broke. Oh...I'm going to be SO broke in the game XD)
Exploring and fighting in the air will be a ton of fun, too. And I called it! I knew the red Doll with the "Bunny ears" is Elma's :D



Tsurii897 commented on Video: This 200cc Mario Kart 8 Comparison Foot...:

@AlexSora89 I hope it'll turn out like that, but I think MK will never be quite as skill-based as CTR. I always felt like the items in that game were really well balanced (and the AI didn't spam the most annoying s*** all the time)

200ccm will still be pretty darn challenging tho. Much hype!



Tsurii897 commented on Download Card Prompts Speculation Over DLC Que...:

@Kaze_Memaryu uhm..the game is released in 1 or 2 weeks in Japan. And Takahashi tweeted a few months ago that he finished his final test playthrough. The game has been "done" for a while now. I'd rather have them use that time to start working on anything they might have in mind for DLC instead of just sitting around and waiting for the release before they move on to whatever they've planned next (be it DLC or an entirely different game)

The same thing happened with Hyrule Warriors. They started working on DLC and announced the seasonpass before the Japanese release, because the game (and physical copies) were already ready.



Tsurii897 commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

It's just like @TunnelSnacksRule said: These are two games, that are supposed to both be massive on their own. And if that is really true 60$ is a pretty good price for that much content. and if the third path/game is as big, that'll be even more impressive. The only question that'd remain is how similar the actual stories are in the end (since they already confirmed that the gameplay will be a bit different). We'll just need to wait and see if they can deliver on what they're promising



Tsurii897 commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

@Einherjar How could you forget Conker in that deal :o

I'm actually not that big of a fan of the Banjo Kazooie (or however you spell that darn bird's name) games, because I simply don't enjoy that kind of 3D platformer, but even I would love those two in Smash. They're a perfect fit imo and well, the way they look alone is just full of awesome haha
If I didn't feel like cheating to submit a second character (and I thought of them earlier) they would definitely get my vote.

And the more I hear about Phil Spencer (which isn't much to be perfectly honest) the more I like him, even though I'm not into anything Microsoft in terms of gaming at all.
